Postdoctoral Research in High-Energy Astrophysical Transients

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Position to work with Dr. Andrew Fruchter on spaced-based observations of high-energy astrophysical objects. You will join a group involved in projects using HST, JWST and Chandra to study gamma-ray bursts, their afterglows, supernovae and hosts and, if the universe cooperates, merging compact binaries detected through both electromagnetic and gravitational waves.
